MOUNT MORRIS, Pa. (May 25, 2008) -- Team MSR/Suzuki/Yoshimura/Pro Taper’s Dustin Wimmer earned the Suspension Systems Holeshot Award and led every lap to take the win in the first moto of the Pro ATV racing program Sunday at High Point Raceway. The event was part of the ATV Stampede, Round 6 of the ITP Tires/Moose Racing AMA/ATVA National Motocross Championship Series.

Wimmer held off Can-Am's Jeremy Lawson throughout the moto to net the victory. Jeremy Lawson was second on a Can-Am. Rounding out the podium was two-time and defending AMA Pro Champion Joe Byrd, who passed Josh Creamer (No. 9 Team Monster Energy Kawasaki) early in the event.

“The track was in great shape; Racer Productions did a good job with this race,” said Wimmer. “My Suzuki got me out front early and everything went well.”

Wimmer fought through tightening muscles in his arms during the event.

“I had arm pump in practice so I was a little worried about it,” added Wimmer. “I just got tight for a while, but I concentrated on keeping a steady pace and not letting my lead get too small. Everything is working well, so we aren’t making any changes for moto two.”

The second moto is scheduled to start 3 p.m.
